Out of Area Patients
If you have applied to join our list as an out-of-area patient. This means you will not be eligible for home visits from the surgery. It is also likely that you will no longer be eligible for other visiting services such as the district nurses, community midwives, community matron or other domiciliary services should they ever be required.
To register as an Out Of Area Patient you must fully understand the implications and if you have any concerns or doubts that this will be suitable for you, you should register at another practice close to your home address.
Before we can accept you as an out of area patient, we have a responsibility to you to ensure it is clinically safe and appropriate to do so. This means we have to be sure you are not likely to require a home visit or use of a domiciliary service in the near future.
